    Although Walnut cottage was a very interesting property, the fact it was on quite a busy road and the garden was not actually accessible directly from the property was not made clear in the description. On the whole the cottage was comfortable and well equipped but the double bed was not that comfortable and would benefit from an upgrade. Welcome pack was a nice touch.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the owner- Thank you Elaine for your comments, which we always take seriously. Walnut cottage is in the centre of village which has a high street and lower street which is access for the village and adjoining villages to get to Ipswich, obviously at work time the traffic would run through this B road. The cottage is at right angle to garden, the drive is at the front of the property and 3 metres from the front door is the attached gate to garden where the fence is attached top property. We have resisted putting a gate at the bottom of drive which would enclose the drive but not giving ease of access to property. The one surprising aspect for us as we recently refurbished 2 years ago with new beds upstairs, new dining table and settee imported from Italy. We have not previously had a comment similar to this , in fact in reverse of it. We will naturally check the comfort when next at the property. Once again many thanks for your comments.

    My husband and I have had the most wonderful weekend in walnut cottage with our two year old daughter. The property was spotless and equipped far beyond what you would expect from a holiday let, the owner had clearly thought of everything! The garden was perfect and safe for our daughter to play in. Cannot recommend the property enough.

    This cottage is on a main road and got very noisy, especially first thing in the morning. We were invaded with flying ants that took up residence between the lounge window and secondary glazing. Due to a badly cut key we got locked in on the first night and had to climb out a very small window to get out. Had there been a fire we would have been in trouble as there was no other means of exit. I phoned the owner that night and left a message and he contacted me the next morning and had someone come to sort the problem out. It appeared very clean on the surface but the carpets and soft furnishings smelled of dog and we were picking up dog hair frequently on our clothes. The carpets were filthy; my daughter's socks turned from white to black/brown within an hour of being there. This cottage was not at all child friendly with a large brick hearth, very little space, no bath, a broken latch to the garden gate and on a main road. There is one local shop within a short walking distance but this sold me out of date, opened, sour milk. A refund and apology were given when I took it back. There is a Morrisons supermarket within a 10 minute drive.There are a few good days out within a 20 minute drive (owl sanctuary, two farms, craft shops and garden centre) so no complaints about location. There was a pub at the top of the road that had very loud live music one afternoon. The relaxing afternoon in the garden didn't really happen due to this.

    The cottage was well equipped, clean and comfortable and a good base for exploring Constable country. The only draw-back was it's location on a main road which seems to be a 'rat-run' for traffic trying to avoid the lengthy queues that build up at the junction of the A14/A12. Secondary double glazing has been installed, which reduced the traffic noise, however it was impossible to leave a window open at night, unless you wanted to be awoken at 5:00am with the rush hour!

    Lovely cottage. A couple of things needed cleaning out before use in the kitchen including the fridge. Otherwise beautifully clean. Internet connection brilliant all week. The DVD player has no leads to connect it to TV. We went out and purchased our own lead to play DVDs from the computer. Location great for long dog walks and trips to the beach. Overall very relaxing break.

    All generally good. the only issue was that with two lively dogs had to be very careful not to let them dash out of an open front door as the road by the entrance door is very busy. there is no back door to get to the garden so access to the garden is via the front door, onto the parking space ( which is next to the only entrance door) and through a gate to the garden

    lovely charming cottage with very nice extras, one or two little snags but nothing that detracted from our holiday Charming owner who telephoned us to talked through the local amenities and again after our holiday to check all was well

    Brilliant week spent in a historic cottage. Lovely, warm and cosy, fascinated with the history of the cottage and the value the owner places on providing such a good amenity. Lovely village and the community shop was so welcoming.
